Massachusetts doctor accused of storming Capitol, punching an officer


A doctor from Ashland is the latest charged with storming the Capitol Jan. 6 — with this suspect accused of punching an officer, the FBI announced.

Dr. Jacqueline Starer was arrested today and “taken into custody without incident,” the FBI added. She’s set for arraignment in Boston later today.

Starer, 68, is charged by criminal complaint, filed in the District of Columbia, with civil disorder, a felony; assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers; entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds; and engaging in physical violence in a restricted building or grounds.

According to court documents, on Jan. 6, 2021, Starer illegally entered Capitol grounds.

She went into the Capitol through the East Rotunda Doors where video from body-worn cameras worn by Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officers shows Starer approach MPD officers and make contact with an MPD officer at approximately 2:59 p.m. Shortly thereafter, Starer stuck an MPD Officer.
